need suggestions on cooperation

so this is the 3rd time they have said i am uncooperative.

1:
situation: we were looking for an outsourceing company and me being me looked for details in their proposale and asked alot of questions so they can validate their knowledge and to get a feel to see if they were the right company for us.

results: they (it outsource group before they were hired) said i was uncooperative with them in the middle of a meeting and later wrote to appoligze for his behavore. since they have been hired, i answer everything i can for them to 100%.

2: situation: coworkers didnt want to fill out the paperwork properly so after the 60th time of asking for more details and more information i wrote him a stern email letting him know that i was fustrated with the level of cooperation i have been recieving. he went to my supervisor with tears in his eyes and complained that i wasnt working with him (by the way he has been here for like 6 years iv only been here for a few months).

result: the owners said it will take a long time to get them to work with me so i should just be the carpet.

3: again coworkers dont want to fill out the paperwork and complane and question me as to why my data is incorrect. my respose was because the data i get is incorrect please work together to ensure what i am inputting is correct.

result: if they complain about me again they will fire me because i wont be a door mat. so they said they wont change and i need to be a team player.

the only reason i dont walk out the door right now is i do need the $$, but i have dignity and wont be stomped on then questioned why my work is not right. i tried to show them the data and what poor quality has been turned in and they dont want to hear it.

wtf would you do? seriously?

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

You apparently make other people 'look bad' by pointing out their errors and thus are labeled the 'rogue'.

If you need the job, figure out the game and play ball, but always CYA.

You can be a team player by actually 'accepting' blame that isn't even yours and draft up something that will 'right' what is 'wrong' (as you see it) with your data source problem.

It sounds like everyone's 'stuck' in the blame game and no one wants it pinned on them. Until you get beyond that 'point' in time, the company will be stuck there as a 'team'. Plunge them through even if you make them all 'save face' and be the 'team player' by telling them how it should be done.

Everyone Exaggerates

BTW, most outsource / consulting groups actually hate people who know what the hell they are talking about because often they are afraid they'll put the bug in the ear that their overpriced 'service' really isn't 'worth it'.

i know. and thats exactly why the owners asked me to look out for their interests. then they throw it back in my face when i give them my suggestions, hell they didnt even want to look at any more firms after the first one and i gave them 3 or 4 names and numbers.

Exactly,
Nobody other than employees that work at the place have 100% of the companys' interest at heart. Full time employees generally do a better job because they plan on being there for the long haul, outsourced employees know they have a gig no matter what .....be it this company or that one.
Luckily our owner hates the idea of outsourced cust service. You may want to pitch that a outsourced company may be supporting dildo's to dog food and will not give your product or service the attention that in house folks will.

Yup.. play ball as much as you have to and don't give a f***.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink...

... it is fun to hold its head under there for a while though and watch it squirm

Don't point fingers; fix the problem and assume the blame. Try to find a way to make everyone look good.

If you can't do that, you're in the wrong place for "you." I get that sometimes at work but I have to cheerlead myself through it, and usually that's all I need because overall, I work w great people. I know what's it's like, though, to be in one of those down ruts. Sucks.
